This week in Shieldinch… Annie’s attempts to free Faith from a life of enslavement enrage Rick; Bob and Kim’s family planning plans stumble when Angus has an accident; and Alasdair puts himself in a compromising position to pay Jules’ rent.
Annie is understandably shocked when a worried Faith turns up on her doorstep, begging for help with one of her friends who was badly injured by a client. Worried about the girls, Annie pleads with Rick to let Faith and her friend go but he warns her to stay out of his business or face dire consequences. - What more could Rick possibly have up his sleeve?
Ignoring the threat, Annie goes to the flat to try and help Faith escape from her prison and comes face-to-face with an enraged Rick. Annie turns to Alex for help and is horrified to discover her fiancé is already in cahoots with Rick. Annoyed at Alex’s amorality, Annie calls off their engagement and turns to an unlikely source to help her give Faith freedom. - Who is the unlikely ally?
Elsewhere, Bob and Kim nervously await the arrival of their home insemination kit as baby making plans dominate their lives.
Angus and Cassie struggle with their self-imposed sex ban, believing it will help maximise their chances. Determined to get himself into peak physical condition, Angus hits the gym but has an accident on an exercise bike which threatens his participation in the baby making process.
A cash-strapped Alasdair feels the pinch when Suzie asks for Jules’ late rent. Alasdair attempts to confess all to Jules but guilt gets the better of him. Desperate to stop Jules becoming homeless, Alasdair takes drastic action to make ends meet.
